I never shut the bathroom door if I'm home alone so I can better hear if a homicidal maniac tries to break in. Also, I can't pee with out looking under the seat and behind the potty. Spiders are my biggest fear. I am completely convinced that one is hiding in the toilet paper roll waiting for me. I'm also convinced that if my hand or foot hangs over the side of the bed when I'm sleeping that the monster under the bed will grab it and pull me undercover to be seen again.

I usually let my stuff lie around.

Unfortunately I have quite a few hobbies. So a square foot of my house would be filled with very random objects next to the other, a typical combination being:

Electromagnet coil -> empty glass of wine -> homemade holographic screen -> note about my novel -> random nut & bolt -> crude drawing of ancient dragon -> dead insect -> pocket watch

Chaos is my favourite kind of order.

We sound similar, If I were single I would sleep in the shed and utilise the house as a workshop/mad inventors man cave.

I am pretty lucky really, not many men get to keep a table saw and router table in the conservatory.

You not a peeing in that nice garden of yours visitedbythem?



*and dad wonders why the pees don't grow!

Nope ,only on non edible shrubs in the front and lawn in the back. My year round raised bed veggie gardens get kelp extract, and Azomite. I do have tons of peas growing though. Oregon snow peas, and sugar snap peas.....

I was fixing up my son's crashed motorbike in my living room for a couple of months last year, built a strong high stand for it out of 4x2 timber as well.


I #ing love my man-cave!

I am more efficient and I get more concentrated when my stuff is NOT organised. We (you and me) seem to be sharing a trait with Sherlock Holmes...

I do not fire pistols at the wall and take coc aine but I feel there is something of a similarity....

I know where everything is and become annoyed when others question my methods but that is to be expected when working on the kind of advanced levels we do and dealing with mere mortals.

a reply to: grainofsandLOL! I have some antique Scoots. When I went to buy my fully restored 53( with the suicide shifter on the tank), the old farmer I got it from had it parked inside his house behind the sofa

FOR THE LOVE OF A GOAT!!!!!!!! I'm so uncomfortable now. That horrible monstrosity will haunt me. The entire house would need to be burned to kill that nasty thing.

As any man would?

I know a bloke that has various Harley Davidsons in different states of repair dotted about his house.

I love that house.

No salad in his fridge but always a cold beer or 15.

Exactly.

Once, moons and moons ago, everyone was out of the area for the weekend. But because the rest of the apartment is shared space, I still dressed to leave my room, just in case. If I ever somehow manage to move out on my own *snickers at his hubris, bearing in mind his financial status and the state of the housing market* then there will be a case for me wandering about with not a thread, anywhere the hell I please in my home. Until I am the master of my own lair however, naked in my personal space will have to suffice.

It's not that I like being naked, it's just that I hate being too hot, so perhaps putting the heating on less would be a solve, but then again, I never put the heating on. Everyone else in my place though... Good lord, it's as if they haven't got any blood, or if they do possess blood, it is too viscous!

There is nothing better in my mind than 'fix son's motorbike in the living room' then chill with a beer on laptop, work on bike, then smoke and a beer on sofa, work on bike a bit more, then instruct son on fixing bike while drinking a beer, then play darts together on the board which is on the wall just above the bike in progress.
Man-caves are the way forward, nobody whinging at you about minor bull# lol

TrueBrit. I have a solution for you. We can kill two birds with one stone. You will wear clothes and will never be hot! Plus you don't need a key.

It is a hard habit to break sir.

We have had a friend staying whilst he got back on his feet(about 6 months) and he left last week.

The liberation of walking to the toilet naked in the middle of the night takes some getting used to again!

The odd thing is that even though he is a good friend and liberal and we can easily go swimming naked in a pond as soon as you are in a home environment it all seems to go a little Edwardian.

We found ourselves passing on the stairs and saying "after you sir", "no after you sir" until one of us snapped and said "walk down the god damn stairs man"
